About The PodRunner®

PodRunner Cargo-PodⓇ


Ready to Go Anytime, Anywhere

The PodRunner® “pod” is securely mounted on a heavy-duty, scissor-lift chassis (the “runner”), with solid “never flat” tires and easy steer T-handle. Narrow and compact, the PodRunner® can be stored almost anywhere: a storage shed, garage or apparatus bay.


One Person, Hundreds of Pounds of Gear, No Lifting!

Roll the PodRunner® from storage to the back of your vehicle. The hitch adapter (included) turns any 2” trailer hitch from a horizontal to a vertical mount. Cranking the handle raises the chassis up to align with the hitch adapter. Once engaged on the hitch, turning the crank handle in the other direction lifts the wheels off the ground. The handle locks for transport. One person can easily mount up hundreds of pounds of gear without lifting a thing!

No Speed, Road or Licensing Restrictions

Because the PodRunner® wheels pull up for transport, you don’t have the speed, road or licensing restrictions of a traditional trailer. Emergency responders can drive Code 3 and anyone can take the PodRunner® over rough terrain. Upon reaching your destination, simply reverse the process with the crank and roll your PodRunner® anywhere it’s needed. All PodRunner® models are narrow enough to fit though doorways and into elevators and the rugged chassis design easily handles uneven or unpaved terrain.

  1. Sturdy universal hitch adapter is included and works with any standard 2″ trailer hitch. No vehicle modifications required.
  2. Solid urethane, never-flat tires can nest above the lower frame for additional clearance during transport.
  3. Chassis scissor lift moves up and down easily and smoothly. Strong enough to carry heavy loads.
  4. T-handle includes comfortable, ergonomic grips and braking system for steep terrain.
